:) After losing over 50 pounds with the help of MFP and this thread, I have been resting on my laurels and being too casual about weighing and measuring and choosing food carefully. It's time for me to recommit and get back to my good habits and behaviours.

:) I look forward to continuing this journey with the help of supportive and encouraging friends. The title says Women Ages 50+ but all women are welcome.

:) Let us know if you have goals or resolutions for July and how you did in June.

:) Be sure to bookmark this page so you can find it again.

:) If you sign your post with a name or nickname and a location, specific or general it helps us get to know each other better.

The reason most people fail instead of succeed is that they trade what they want the MOST for what they want at the MOMENT.

My word for 2020 is "flexible"---both of body and attitude.

    Thanks BARBIE
    Welcome newbies
    Hubby has gone to do weekly shop. I went for walk yesterday and went into supermarket for the first time in 3 months felt a bit strange.
    Later will do KB workout plus cardio and a line dance video on YouTube
    DH is so pleased that he has an appointment next week for a haircut, I haven’t got confirmation if mine we both go to different salons.

    Stay safe

    Kate UK ❤️

    KJ lots of parents could benefit from your wonderful ways with the kids. How often do I hear them saying to littlest ‘don’t do that you’ll get dirty’ best thing for them play in the dirt, jump in mud puddles. When mine were little I let them get covered in paint at the kitchen table. They remember all these things, my grands loved our beach holidays digging and getting covered in sand. Happy memories.
